Dec 22, 2010
Werewolf thriller set during French revolution.

Leave it to the French to find a place for kung fu in an 18th century corsets and werewolves epic. And, give them credit for including a generous helping of sex, bawdiness and a dash of Native American mysticism, too, just to make things interesting.

A wonder of magpie postmodernism, a samurai adventure with Hong Kong action and a wry touch of American Western, all sewn into a free interpretation of Gallic history that also has its finger on the pulse of current social trends.

Instead of fluid acrobatics, we get hyperbolic montages of kicking feet, somersaulting torsos, and fists connecting with faces.

Fun movie, animatronic beast and all.

Exhilirating viewing, at least while the feet are flying and the fangs are baring.
Feb 8, 2002
Utterly preposterous but so full of enthusiasm and flashy style that it's entertaining anyway.
Feb 1, 2002
An extraordinary film, although not necessarily a good one.
Jan 24, 2002
A tediously complicated, half-mad narrative that involves, among other things, a secret society, a house of prostitution, a beautiful noblewoman, the king of France and a one-armed man who isn't what he seems.
Jan 22, 2002
This new take on horror is more of the bloody same.
Jan 22, 2002
Pop-fantasy action films don't have to be this unendingly horrid.
Jan 20, 2002
A deeply ambitious picture, one of the most expensive and original to come out of France in many years.

This is a film to savor, not only for the intelligent currents it establishes between past and present but also for the bravura it brings to pure spectacle.
Jan 18, 2002
Ridiculously entertaining, like a 2-hour visit to some weird foreign county fair where you visit an educational exhibit, knock down some stuffed targets, catch the freak show, visit the house of horrors and then get lucky on the Ferris wheel.
Jan 17, 2002
Feels artificial, a concoction designed to be outrageous and cool, instead of earning coolness on its own merits.
Jan 17, 2002
This is one of those follies that go beyond pesky, bourgeois notions of 'good' and 'bad.'
Jan 15, 2002
It's easily the most disarming and inventive movie made for genre geeks in years.
Jan 15, 2002
Daring in its approach and successful in its result -- assuming the result is to provide pure entertainment to the viewer.
Jan 13, 2002
Exciting, sexy, smart, funny and damn scary.
Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
